Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger has signed a bill that will eliminate overtime pay for certain computer professionals.

Assembly Bill 10 creates an overtime exemption for computer professionals working in California who are engaged in “intellectual or creative” work, which includes systems analysis, programming or software engineering.

To be exempt, computer professionals must earn at least $36 per hour or $75,000 per year. Those thresholds may go up or down in coming years to keep pace with the California Consumer Price Index.

The new law, which went into effect when Schwarzenegger signed it, clears up a legal ambiguity. California’s high-tech industry supported the legislation.
